Track Name: Detritivore
I'm doomed to dig my own grave
Track Name: Cursed
First things first I'll let you know that I am cursed
Doomed to dig my own grave
Bound to drive my own hearse

I'm doomed to dig my own grave

I've got nothing to say
Nothing to make you feel the right way
Burnt out throat
No words to speak
I'll never be anything
I'll never be the source of anything you seek

Not a chance in hell that I'll ever be well
Not a chance in hell
Not a chance in hell

I might as well put my head right through a wall
Nothing I do is right, no, nothing at all
I'm the source of my own grief
Keep myself from any form of relief
No release, no, just defeat
Standing up just to get knocked off my feet

Cursed
I'm cursed
Nothing for me
My conscience is dead

I'm doomed to dig my own grave
I'm bound to drive my own hearse

First things first I'll let you know that I am cursed
Doomed to dig my own grave
Bound to drive my own hearse

Cursed
Track Name: North Star
We cling to the names
The labels that we display
But when it all comes down to it

They mean nothing

This modern way of living is so backwards
We victimize the culprit and condemn the innocent

Condemn the innocent

Nothing we read is true
Only a product of this backwards system
When it all comes to an end
It'll be the source of it's own demise

Hate outnumbers love
Money outnumbers all
Track Name: That Was Then, This Is Now
I feel like an empty shell
Drag myself down to hell
Thoughts becoming actions
Nightmares become reality

No sign of hope in sight
Not a gleam of saving light
No grace for me
I'll just become a memory

They told me it would be alright
But I wonder if they lied
Just to say that they tried
So their fault can be denied
They feel better inside
Behind the lies they could hide
Ignore the words that I cried

Now I'm left to decide

What's to become of me?
I just feel so goddamn empty
Is there something I don't see?
Something needs to set me free

I feel like an empty shell
Drag myself down to hell
Thoughts becoming actions
Nightmares become reality

No sign of hope in sight
Not a gleam of saving light
No grace for me
I'll just become a memory

The war inside my head rages on
A perfect example of what's gone wrong
This night has raged on for far too long

What's to become of me?
I just feel so goddamn empty
Track Name: Reality
Your life is a joke
Sit there and choke
On the lies they all feed you

I will never be like you
Product of something untrue
You're a traitor to yourself
And a joke to everyone else

See the world through my eyes
See things for what they really are
Deny yourself the sight of the weak
Obtain perspective

This world is not here to please you
This earth owes you nothing
This fucking world is not here to please you
And I sure as hell owe you nothing

It's time you see the truth
Open your eyes
Gain some sight
See the truth
Open your eyes:

Humanity is fucked

We end ourselves
